Conserve power

We cant imagine todays world without power.But do we have the awareness regarding the conservation of electricity.Only because of the wastage and unwanted usage in many business and other sectors we are facing a power shortage .The frequent power power cuts which is taking place recently everywhere has only made people realise this and to give a thought for conservation.

But apart from all this there is an interesting fact .

"The increased electricity used by modern appliances is causing a shift in the Earth's magnetic field. By the year 2327, the North Pole will be located in mid-Kansas, while the South Pole will be just off the coast of East Africa."
This fact is really mind blowing !!!

Building Spins 360 Degrees!!

factsAn unbelievable fact of a building which spins 360 degrees. A Company in Brazil constructed a building in which each floor can rotate 360 degrees. Each building has 11 apartments and each apartment can spin individually in any direction.One rotation takes a full hour, but apartment owner can set rotation speed through apartment control panel.

What an intelligent plan of the building. Facades are made of three different types of glass which give wonderful effects when building spins during the sunset.After i have told all this, you people might be wondering, regarding the cost of the building right. The Cost of each apartment is $US 300,000.00.Thats the small picture of the building.
I wish atleast i get an opportunity to see the building in person.

Ananasblau

Ananasblau is a new site for listing neologisms, which is just a fancy way of saying new words (or new uses for existing words). In a way, it's a lot like Word Spy, but instead of dealing with words that have entered the language via trusted sources, anyone can add a new word to the site. It's very new and hasn't been used much (though a few spammers seem to have located it). Appropriately, the name of the site itself is a neologism, apparently meaning "a funny color between blue, yellow and green," according to the site.

Internet Addiction!! watch out

Are you addicted to your online connection?
Are you one of those crazy folks that can’t wait to read the email with your morning coffee?
Doctors are calling it serious addiction combined with: Cybersexual Addiction, Computer Addiction and Cyber-Relational Addiction.
They even managed to stamp the cool names for it, like Internet Addictive Disorder (IAD) or the Internet Overuse Syndrome (IOS).
Internet addiction should not be labeled as addiction like gambling or drug addiction. There should be a strict line that distances other addictions from the “internet addiction”.
Staying in touch with your friends or watching funny YouTube videos is not a destructive behavior which usually characterizes major addictions. If you gamble on the internet then you are not addicted to the internet, but online gambling. Internet is a wonderful tool, but like everything else in this Universe there is the sunny side and the dark side of the pyramid of life. Stay Positive buddies!


Speed of light

factsThe speed of light was broken by two physicists, Gunter Nimtz and Alfons Stahlhofen, in Germany from the University of Koblenz. This seriously questions Einstein's theory that no object or information can move faster than the speed of light in a vacuum. An example of what could happen with this is time travel, but not like you imagine: If you went for a car trip faster than the speed of light, you'd arrive at your destination before you'd even leave, theoretically, of course. As Dr Guenter Nimtz said: "The effect cannot be used to go back in time, only to reduce the time between cause and effect a little bit."Amazing right!

Goats that climb Trees

factsGoats can climb trees! Isn't this quite interesting buddies!
In Morocco goats climb Argan trees to consume delicious berries which are similar to the olives. Local farmers follow these goats because fruit of the Argan tree has the nut inside which is used to make delicious cooking oil.

Besides the climbing goats the most amazing thing is that Morocco goats spit or excrete these nuts, which then farmers use to make the
Argan oil. However, Argan trees are close to extinction now because of the tree wood harvesting. Some organizations are trying to promote Argan oil to became marketing success in order to preserve these weird trees. We all hope that these goats will continue their climbing adventures! LOL

all people in the room.

3.Listen - don’t interrupt and if you don’t understand the question, ask the interviewer to repeat it by saying “PARDON”.

4.Be friendly and smile - but don’t be too casual and relaxed - you still want to be seen as professional and courteous.

5.Give short answers - get straight to the point and don’t waffle, but don’t give basic ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answers either.

Yawning makes dogs yawn too

A Dog Yawning




Hey do you know this interesting fact that we can simulate yawning in our pets.
According to research published recently, a yawn is likely to set off pets as well. Psychologists found that dogs were far more likely to break into a yawn if they witnessed humans simulating the action.

If you yawn near your dog, chances are it will yawn too.

Dogs find human yawns contagious, suggesting they have a rudimentary capacity for empathythey found.

Although yawning is widespread in many animals, contagious yawning - a yawn triggered by seeing others yawning - has previously only been shown to occur in humans and chimpanzees.

It turns out, however, that man's best friend is highly sensitive to catching human yawns, with 72 per cent of 29 dogs tested yawning after observing a person doing so.

Do u know about these in olympics?

Olympic motto
In 1921, Pierre de Coubertin, founder of the modern Olympic Games, borrowed a Latin phrase from his friend for the Olympic motto: Citius, Altius, Fortius ("Swifter, Higher, Stronger").

Olympic oath
"In the name of all competitors, I promise that we shall take part in these Olympic Games, respecting and abiding by the rules that govern them, in the true spirit of sportsmanship, for the glory of sport and the honor of our teams."

The Olympic Flame
The Olympic flame is a practice continued from the ancient Olympic Games. In Olympia (Greece), a flame was ignited by the sun and then kept burning until the closing of the Olympic Games. The flame first appeared in the modern Olympics at the 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam. The flame itself represents a number of things, including purity and the endeavor for perfection. The Olympic Torch is then passed from runner to runner from the ancient site of Olympia to the Olympic stadium in the hosting city. The flame is then kept alight until the Games have concluded. The Olympic Torch relay represents a continuation from the ancient Olympic Games to the modern Olympics.

The Olympic Hymn
The Olympic Hymn, played when the Olympic Flag is raised, was composed by Spyros Samaras and the words added by Kostis Palamas. The Olympic Hymn was first played at the 1896 Olympic Games in Athens but wasn't declared the official hymn by the IOC until 1957.


Dogs Head Lives Without Body

An amazing fact people. In 1940 U.S.S.R conducted research where he experimented with dogs and proved that dogs head can live without its body for three days. I wondered how this is possible.


Special artificial conditions were created to power the head with arterial and venous pumps. Dog's isolated head reacted to all basic external stimulants: light, sound, pain and taste.Its not possible with humans.



This disturbing Russian experiment helped scientist around the world to create artificial organs that are used by many medical institutes. More recently a monkey's head was transplanted onto another monkey's body.Just imagine how come these experiments are done!
